The auger is attached to the headstock with 3" top sheaths. They are slightly bent away from the horse for more freedom. Bridles are connected with 3" long, arched lower shafts. Outside the nozzle the rings are 1 1/2" broad and 2" high. They' re not made for a kerbstone.
Thighs are connected to the mouth piece in a join without an egg button. Generously sized 5" mouth piece 1/2 " thick above the web. The #2 on a #1 to #4 dial, where #1 is the most mild Richard Shrake Resistance Free one. Rods are gently bent to adjust the reed while the middle is slightly elevated to give space to the reed.
When the mouthpieces move around the horse's jaws, the teeth can be closed at the side of the horse's jaw. Nosepiece material: Bend, fabric, diameter and dual hinge of the nozzle make it pleasant. High thighs put significant downward pressures on the corner of the oral cavity. Temple ports on the lower shafts trigger this force while they moderate it in comparison to the lower shafts (slower and milder).
This remarkable rotation of this set of teeth gives a "PreSignal" to the padded corner of the horse's jaws just before it presses on the lingual surface and the bollard, and with more pull on the pub. These teeth are classed as "elevator teeth", and Richard Shrake ascribes an early draft to the rider Jimmy Williams.
Belts of this kind have prolongations over the mouth piece and work with substantial pollen pressures from curbs. You don't have any kerbs. Sometimes they have bridle ring, but only for second use. This mouth piece we particularly like. There is a lighter but stringent lip and reed force in the dual hinge because it presses from three different angles.
Traditionally, the exercise was taught in the behavioural way by a stallion to react well to a bit of a horse brush, then produce the same reaction in a mouth and then change to a thin mouth under a kerbstone to make it even more reactive. I was aiming for a horse of the highest sensibility.
This bit was developed by Szrake to help today's horsemen close the space between bridles and kerbs without using the mouth. Name of the bit comes from its use (connection of the bridle with the kerb during training). It is one of several resistance-free bit that allow you to communicate with your horse through the pre-signal without the need for drag, strength or undue stress.
" If your horse reacts to this slight "PreSignal" instead of a stronger tension on the reeds and rods, Shrake says that you should experience a slight, even framework of self-management. Self-propagation comes from the horse, which takes more of its load onto the hind leg and balances itself in the longitudinal direction (from front to back).
When the horse starts to train in self-driving, it will easily be in your hand and will not rush forward to capture its equilibrium. But Shrake says that this bit is good for re-training chances that are rigid in the survey, and for jumpy ponies. PreSignal gives the horse the possibility to react before it feels the foot and reed-pressures.
When your horse is anxious about this stress, he may feel more at ease with this set of teeth. It is also available for those that are too weighty to be ridden in a bridle, for those that run through a bridle, or for kids when a bridle is not enough.
During the workout, according to how your horse is feeling every single working session, and when horse backpacking, horse chasing, or horse racing, you should act. The bit has no kerb belt and is not intended for use with a kerb belt, although the use of a kerb belt on bridle ring is usual in some circuits.
In fact, the effect of the kerb would be minimized, as the mouth piece closes at the hinges due to the force of the reins - this would remove the kerb ligament from the jawline. This set of teeth was tried out on a horse that was easy and well-behaved, both in bridles and in gentle kerbs, and we found a certain nasal tip tolerance, which we probably felt due to the higher survey pressures that they did not have before.
We recommend giving each new set of teeth at least 10 attempts so that the horse feels at ease with its different distributions of stress. Said that the horse learns to defend itself by strengthening and changing its posture on the forehead, which was probably the case before our horse learnt to react gently to the new set of teeth.
We' ve tried to ride with one handed grip on the throat and believe that the inner reins (to make the horse remember the right inner curve) can be destroyed by the associated inner pollen-pressures. Also, we ridden with two arms, thinking that each opening (in front) or directly (towards the elbows) could cause a confusion for the horse, as the direction al and curve signals are followed by a survey and an upwards push.
When pulling the bridle and lower leg out sideways, the top shaft can also be rubbed against the side of the horse. that this bit should be used with bridles on the bridle ring. Sometimes he uses a lunging device, a beat-gatherer that can be attached to these bands.
In this part we drove with four bridles and afterwards only with two bridles at the bridle-ring. In this last setting the convenience of the mouth piece became clear. They reacted softer and more comfortable than one-hinged bridles. Note the curvature of the mouth piece when you connect the bit to your head piece; the curvature of the bridges gives this bit a certain front and back.
Make sure that the top of the bit is the same length as your horse's mouth and that your headpiece is not too slender. The rein push moves the headpiece ring forward and the headpiece can move unpleasantly near the horse's eye. But also jumping ponies, persevering ponies and barrels racer use this bit.
